Hi Don and Stuart!

Phoenix Mars Lander, the planned reflight of the Mars Polar
Lander mission which is thought to have crash landed on Mars,
will be launched in 2007. If Phoenix survives its 10 months long
coast to Mars and has a successful landing, we will finally get
some real quantitative answers as to the amount of water just
beneath the surface of Mars and a better understanding of
Martian meteorology thanks largely to researchers such as Allan
Carswell, Diane Michelangeli and Peter Taylor (to name a few)
from York University in Toronto.

It is interesting that Mike Malin of Malin Space Sciences
Systems (MSSS), the one that re-imaged the Face on Mars with the
still orbiting Mars Global Surveyor, is also on the Phoenix Mars
Lander team as an imaging co-investigator. For this reason I can
understand why Mike would want to search for and image the Mars
Polar Lander to insure that Phoenix Mars Lander does not meet
the same fate should it sink in a pond of melted polar ice water
or comes down on one of Sir Arthur C. Clarke's "Martian Bushes"
when landing.
